Posted on 04/15/2002 9:19:17 AM PDT by EternalHope
Is it coincidence, or is something really major about to happen?
1. Israel issues a "code 8" to all Israeli citizens worldwide. Apparently this means they are needed in Israel, and are to return immediately. The last code 8 was associated with the 1973 war.
2. Tomorrow (Tuesday) is Israel's independence day. The evil ones are very big on timing attacks for symbolic significance.
3. A new tape showing Osama Bin Laden is broadcast, including statements about how it is time to attack Americans, in America.
4. Arafat supposedly issues a tepid condemnation of terrorism. The statement does not even make it clear that it is from Arafat. The Palestine Authority's official information service issues a statement calling for attacks on Israel, and America, in the clearest terms possible.
5. The U.S. Secretary of State ignores all logic and common sense in a transparently hopeless attempt to make peace. Absolutely no one expects him to succeed, but U.S. prestige is damaged by the attempt.
6. Powell's presence does, however, mean the number 3 person in the Bush Administration is directly on the scene if major trouble starts. It also means we have an extremely high ranking person potentially in the line of fire. If he dies, every Arab (and European) knows we will retaliate.
7. The Pope calls all Cardinals to the Vatican. He has previously stated emphatically that he will NOT step down. If this is not to elect a new Pope, then it is extremely unusual.
8. I'm sure other Freepers are aware of many things I left out, such as the alert issued in India for a possible Al Qaida attack on dams in India.
Is all this merely coincidence, or is Tuesday going to be a very interesting day?
He called all US cardinals only.
Alright, can we stop with the theories and conspiracies please? What's going to happen will happen.
Apparently, there have been less than half as many tornadoes as in an equivalent average period.
Coincidence? I seriously doubt it.
Just to many things going on...
In 4 1/2 hours it will be Tuesday in Israel.
The months of Nissan and Iyar occur between March & June. Shavu'ot corresponds to Pentecost. Apparently their Holocaust Rememberance, Memorial Day, Independence Day, and "Jerusalem Liberation" Day all occur within a 1-month period, that we're right in the middle of right now.
A few minor holidays have been added to the calendar to commemorate various significant events of the 20th century relating to the Holocaust and the modern state of Israel. All of these holidays occur in the period between Passover and Shavu'ot. These holidays are not universally acknowledged, the dates are not entirely agreed upon, and the observances are not yet standardized. Nevertheless, they are worth noting.
Also known as Holocaust Remembrance Day, this holiday occurs on the 27th of Nissan. "Shoah" is the Hebrew word for the Holocaust. This is a memorial day for those who died in the Holocaust. [Editor's Note: The date for Holocaust Martyrs and Heroes Remembrance Day was set as the closest date to the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising immediately after Passover and before Israel Independence Day.]
Israeli Memorial Day, observed on Iyar 4, remembers those who died in the wars that Israel has fought.
Israeli Independence Day, marking the establishment of the modern state of Israel in 1948. It is observed on the 5th of Iyar. According to some views, the restrictions of the Omer period are lifted for this day. A few anti-Zionist Jews observe this day as a day of mourning for the sin of proclaiming the state of Israel without the Messiah.
The 28th day of Iyar commemorates the reunification of the city of Jerusalem in Israeli hands. According to some views, the restrictions of the Omer period are lifted for this day.
I would, but then I might have to take off my tin foil body armor...
Consider it off the list. I posted it before any details were out.
Our prestige is damaged every day by Congress. Mr. Powell, who is simply, a dark skined "Jimmy Carter" matters not.

Refer to my 1st comment.
The store was out when I tried to buy more this morning...
Two birds with one stone...
A propos, this morning's paper says that uniformed postal employees will be standing in front of the main post office here at midnight, accepting the IRS greeting cards directly from the motorists' hands. Would you happen know how one can get a hold of a postal employee uniform for just one evening? (I've already got a sufficient supply of ink bleach, thank you.)
IT'S A SIGN!
And I can tell you (having forgotten it as 4/15 & needing to buy a roll of stamps today), that the lines inside for people wanting to have their missives to the IRS and Wisconsin Dept. of Revenue weighed & stamped were huge, out-the-door huge. And it's only morning.
Today's the day I feel sorry for postal workers everywhere.
Two birds with one stone...
Say hello to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice?
"9 out of 10 voices in my head said stay home and clean my guns today." (Bumper sticker I saw.)
"On 1,May 2002, the Chinese VP is scheduled to be here in the US for official talks with our leaders. That is, of course, May Day. The traditional Communist day of glorifying spring and their nation's courageous military men and machines. Usually with large parades of military hardware."
"The date, May 1, is also significant because it is MAYDAY. As in declaring an emergency. Just as 911 means emergency. Just like on Dec 7, 1941, the Japanese Vice President was here in the US for official talks as a diversion."
"This time, the Chinese VP is scheduled to meet with both VP Cheney and President Bush. Now, how can one of them be securely hidden away from harm when they're both supposed to be meeting our enemy?"
"Certainly Dick Cheney won't be meeting him "in the bunker". They think that we've forgotten history--or maybe they have. Call it tin foil all you want, but there are too many "coincidences" surrounding this little "visit" by the enemy VP for comfort in my eyes."
"They would be taking their one and only shot at the still sleepy American giant while it was waking up."
"It would be the perfect sequel to 911, when you remember that the Chinese government produced those videos praising the attacks while calling for an end to American hegemony. And if Chinese are indeed the puppetmasters I was referring to above, then this attack would be a spectaculer one indeed....."

The Two Witnesses Revelation 11
...And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth." ...
5 If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. ....
6 These men have power to shut up the sky so that it will not rain during the time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want.
7 Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them.
8 Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city,...where also their Lord was crucified.
9 For three and a half days men from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial.
10 The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.
11 But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them.
12 Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here." And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on.
Better buy another can of Spam for the shelter.
All American cardinals, per the Catholic News Service. Details and timetable not revealed, yet.
Make that the Catholic World News. I don't trust the Catholic News Service, as it belongs to the bishops.
Tommorrow, it will have been 217 days since 9/11.
If you type then number 217 on a calculator and hold it upside down it looks like LI2, or lithium, which is a drug used to treat "mania".
If you add up then digits (2+1+7) it comes out to 10, or if written out backwards is "net".
Mere coincidence? I think not!
